Famous quotes containing the word burgess:

    We are supposed to be the children of Seth; but Seth is too much of an effete nonentity to deserve ancestral regard. No, we are the sons of Cain, and with violence can be associated the attacks on sound, stone, wood and metal that produced civilisation.
    —Anthony Burgess (b. 1917)

    Do they merit vitriol, even a drop of it? Yes, because they corrupt the young, persuading them that the mature world, which produced Beethoven and Schweitzer, sets an even higher value on the transient anodynes of youth than does youth itself.... They are the Hollow Men. They are electronic lice.
    —Anthony Burgess (b. 1917)

    I’m Sorry, now, I Wrote it,
    But I can Tell you Anyhow,
    I’ll Kill you if you Quote it.
    —Gelett Burgess (1866–1951)
